This week’s acquisition: Printed T-strapped Wedges

I finally found the time to head over to Greenhills and visit Ichigo Shoes’s Shop.
Unboxing my first pair of shoes from Ichigo
Love <3
The T-strapped style has little appeal to me in the past. I don’t know what’s with the sudden change of heart and on a whim I chose this pair. It’s probably the prints. But now, I’m loving T-straps more.

The box even comes with shoe care instructions under the box lid. So helpful!
The SA told me that they will be stocking up new ...

Have you received a suspension email from "support@twitter.com"?

Last week, I got this email from a certain support@twitter.com. It was in my Inbox, which means it was not considered as spam. The email read:

This totally shook me, because it’s actually true that I follow a huge number of people not proportional to the number of my followers. Of course, I’m not doing it to be annoying on purpose, and I have really never heard of being suspended for following accounts of people you really want to follow. When has that been such a crime??

I immediately checked ...

Random Snapshots — August 3rd Week

Still spending my weeknights chilling over at Caffeina, Adriatico Manila

Reading Japanese Fashion Magazines over my favorite Caramel Toasted Mallows

Thursday Dinner with family. This is our thanksgiving dinner for finally having internet connection after 2 months. Up to this day, I still cannot believe that I did not die from the lack of internet connection. It’s like oxygen to me :)) and the frequent trips to Caffeina felt like gasps of breaths.

Then there were breakfasts like this — compo...

The French Baker Closing Hour Sale — Breads at Half Price

Break muna sa makeup and reviews. Today I want to share with you my shopping experience at The French Baker, Robinsons Place Ermita.

I live just around Rob, so sometimes, I get to stay past eight and I see this people lining up over at French Baker. The first time I witnessed this, it really got me curious. I realized that this was because during closing hour, or starting at 9:00 PM, The French Baker sells their left-over breads at half price!

This is amazing for two reasons:

Sweet Pampering at Beauty And Butter

Got tired feet? I do. Not just that, but tired hands, sometimes even coupled with an aching back. I’d like to give you guys an idea on what I do for a living. My day job is a nurse in one of the busiest tertiary hospitals in the metro. My shift runs for eight hours a day, about five days a week. My job as a nurse entails that I attend to every patient’s needs, even if it means not getting a chance to sit down even for a moment during the whole shift...

Free Coffee c/o CBTL’s Open House

I invited my dad over to the open house of Coffee Bean and Teal Leaf last Sunday. They were serving their newest drink, Espresso and Cream Ice Blended Coffee, for FREE. We decided to go try the CBTL at Ortigas Park, wherever that is.
My Floral Blue Espadrilles. It might look like I have two left feet, but no. :|
We had no idea where it was. We just asked for directions on how to get there. Turns out it was just beside the parking lot we always park at. /fail.

Weekend Adventure: Lunch at Sushi-ya + Pet-Parazzi Parade



It was a rainy Saturday. Woke up at 10 in the morning, and decided to have lunch at Sushi-ya, Megamall. We considered eating lunch at our favorite japanese place, Ji-Pan, but we wanted to try something new. We also considered Orchard Road, but it scared us that there were only a few people having lunch over there, despite the size of the place and attractive menu.





We bought this set of maki for only 200 pesos...

Grunge

Just so you know, I’ve never been this manic before in my entire life. Maybe because, I feel like time is running out for me. I feel like I’m going to go someplace soon, and I have an ominous feeling that it’s not gonna be all that fun.
I’m just trying to enjoy the time I have left. Shopping, going to events, reading books, bumming around, things I might not have the privilege to do in the very near future. Yes, this includes wearing boots and lace tights.
This also includes keeping my n...
